Are you ready to get busy with some chalk paint and good ol’ mason jars?
I have a simple DIY chalk paint mason jars project to share with all of you wonderful readers today!
To start this chalk paint mason jar project, first start with the materials list. This can be altered to your taste and color choices.

Annie Sloan chalk paint, the color Provence was used.
Poly* to seal
Paint brushes, large and small
Sanding block to distress, if desired
Embellishments: Bakers twine*, flowers
Begin by painting the glass jars. Paint a first coat and let dry for an hour. Then apply a second coat.
While the jars are drying, cut out the paper that will be decoupaged to the jar lid. Then place glue on top of lid-start smoothing out the paper from the inside of the lid out towards the ends. Let dry.
If you desire distressing, take your sandpaper block and gently rub areas of paint away to give it that distressed look.
You will now need to seal everything: jars, lids, and bands. I used poly, but wax is also an option.
And now the really fun part-embellishing. Let your style shine!
There you have it…easy right? These make great teachers gifts-just fill with some Hershey’s kisses and add a personalized message to the tag. And, you can even get the kiddos involved in the whole creative process! So fun.
